Research Grants

The Welch Foundation supports fundamental chemical research at educational institutions within the state of Texas.

A research grant provides a minimum of $80,000 per year in funding to support research in chemistry by a full-time regular faculty member with tenure or on tenure-track who serves as principal investigator. Applications are restricted to universities, colleges, or other educational institutions located within the state of Texas and also listed as an educational institution by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

The grantee may use funds for fellowships, scholarships, permanent scientific equipment, expendable scientific items, services, equipment maintenance, publication expenses, and travel according to The Foundation’s guidelines.

Proposals must submitted through proposalCentral by noon on the last business day of January of each year.  See Guidelines and Procedures for instructions for proposalCentral.  A link to the proposalCentral website is provided below.
